Hi, I am moving to london next month and I am privately renting a flat and was just wondering what the parking situation is at brunel as I would be eligible for a parking permit. How early would I need to arrive to get parking at brunel for say a 9am lecture and do the spaces get filled quickly. Also are you allowed to park in the pay and display bays if you have the permit or not?
Also as insurance prices are high for the area does anyone have any insurance companies that they can reccomend getting a quote from? Thanks.

Hi,

1) You'll need to buy an annual parking permit or use pay and display to avoid a parking fine on campus.

You can apply for an annual parking permit if you:

live more than two miles from the campus (this is measured in a straight line from the Brunel statue)
are fully enrolled and have proof that the vehicle is registered in your name (in the form of a V5C document/insurance policy showing you as a named driver)

You can park for free if you:

have a valid blue badge or
drive a motorcycle or scooter, you can register to park for free in these areas on campus or
park after 4pm and before 8am Monday to Friday or at the weekend. You just need to apply for free out of hours access.

2) To park in the pay and display bays on campus you will need to either pay using the coin operated machines and displaying a valid ticket or pay by mobile phone using Parkmobile.

How much does it cost?

Parking on campus: To park in the pay and display bays on campus you will need to either pay using the coin operated machines and displaying a valid ticket or pay by mobile phone using Parkmobile.

How much does it cost?

Parking on campus: £1 per hour between 8am and 4pm Monday to Friday. Free at weekends and evenings.


Parking at the sports pavilion: Mon-Fri 8am - 4pm will costs £1.50 per hour and £6 for over 4 hours.

3) There are enough parking spaces for 9 am lectures. It tends to get packed after lunch time. However, take into consideration the distance of the car park to the lecture building.


Hope this helps.
